'Ard Boyz List and my thoughts on Orks at 2500

Let me start with a brief summary of what the hell I am talking about.

For those of you who don't know 'ard Boyz is the only GW sponsored event that can be sort of seen as a regional championship.

I use all these terms loosely, as the culminating event, "The Throne of Skulls" is not a super competitive event. The prizes for these events are very good though and they give you a very good idea of who is top dog in your area by the end of the second event.

Of course, being a competitive gamer, I am all in on the idea of busting heads and winning some booty as well.

More info after the break!

'ard Boyz is supposed to be the roughest, dirtiest list you can come up with. It specifically doesn't have any painting requirements or comp scores. Make it mean!!!

Here are the Scenerios, and here is a list of locations hosting an event this weekend.

I recommend Game Empire in Pasadena if you are a local LA fellow.

2,500 points puts a few armies in more difficult positions though.

I know Dark Eldar already fills Troops, Heavy Support and, Elites at 1850.
I am taking an almost full org chart!

Other people such as Grey Knights, or Blood Angels can take stupid amounts of tanks/hardcore units. Guard just gets silly. MASSIVE PARKING LOTS!!!

So that begs the question; "Soldado, what are you taking to the tournament on Saturday."

My Master Piece;

Heavy Support
Battlewagon with Deff Rolla, RPJ, Armor Plates and a Kannon (For the Burnas and the Big Mek) 135
Battlewagon with Deff Rolla, RPJ, Armor Plates, Boarding Plank and Big Shoota (For Ghaz and the 18 Shoota boyz)
Battlewagon with Deff Rolla, RPJ, Armor Plates and a Big Shoota (For the 20 Shoota Boyz)


So there it is in all its glory.
I was going to go for a 5 wagon double deathstar Nobz list, but I think it would again be very one dimensional and suffer drastically like I did at the Bay Area Open. I will not make the same mistake twice that's for damn sure!

4 meaty wagons, supported by Koptas and Lootas and 2 Trukk Boyz squads on the flanks to harass.

Seems like it might work.

I will post back my results next week.

Good luck to everyone attending an event this weekend.
